Angel turns suicide bomber!

Angel turns suicide bomber!

An angel, trapped on earth, has resorted to terrorist activities in order to return to her natural state of loving bliss. The angel, known to the public only as “Angel,” has made an internet broadcast claiming that “we are all entitled to be loved unconditionally for who we really are” and that she will be “doing all of humanity a favour” if she carries out her explosive plans.

Angel is a funny and touching contemporary clowntheatre show. Created by the most talented of Christchurch's independent circus, theatre and music artists, Angel takes an irreverent and playful look at modern spiritual alternatives.

Angel tells the story of an angel fallen to earth and longing to return to heaven. A sweetness pervades the piece as the angel discovers and pursues earthly ways of achieving enlightenment.

Three uniquely talented women have brought their expertise together in the creation of Angel: Olli Ricken (circus tutor at Christchurch Polytech) is masterful as the angel, gifting the audience a depth that her 17 years of experience in clowntheatre and circus allow her. Lucette Hindin (the clinic) brings to the piece her unique skill and ten years of professional experience creating cutting edge and beautiful devised theatre. Arielle Atman, intuitive pianist, has created music for Angel which on its own would satisfy an audience for an hour. Angel catches these three at the height of their creative careers. Angel is a funny, thoughtful, and expertly delivered piece of theatre.
